As you can see we have a very busy 2 weeks in December and there is no way the four of us Choral Directors can make it without MANY parent volunteers.  From sorting music, monitoring dressing rooms, and making sure 181 students are where they need to be—we could use your help!  Look for a special email coming soon with Parent Volunteer opportunities and details.
